Non-Fickian Transport of Pioglitazone from a CMC/PVA/SDS Blend Patch Gel

  title={Non-Fickian Transport of Pioglitazone from a CMC/PVA/SDS Blend Patch Gel},
  author={S. M. Shaheen and Nazir Hossen},
Drugs having narrow absorption window in GIT like pioglitazone has poor absorption and needs alternative route to be delivered. In order to introduce transdermal applicability of pioglitazone here we formulated a few preparations of CMC/PVA/SDS blend patch gel containing pioglitazone and evaluated its kinetic feasibility for transdermal delivery in vitro. The kinetic behavior of pioglitazone delivery from the patch gel showed an interesting Non-Fickian Transport, somewhere tends to be Case-II… Expand

Transdermal drug delivery system has been in existence for a long time and topically applied creams and ointments for dermatological disorders and various chemical penetration enhancers that may allow delivery of therapeutic substances are being examined. Expand
Penetration enhancers.
Many potential sites and modes of action have been identified for skin penetration enhancers; the intercellular lipid matrix in which the accelerants may disrupt the packing motif, the intracellular keratin domains or through increasing drug partitioning into the tissue by acting as a solvent for the permeant within the membrane.

Controlled release of dexamethasone from PLGA microspheres embedded within polyacid-containing PVA hydrogels
A comprehensive evaluation of the structure-property relationships of these hydrogel/microsphere composites, in conjunction with their in vitro release performance, it was concluded that these polyacids segregate on the PLGA microsphere surfaces and thereby result in localized acidity. Expand
Nano and microparticles as controlled drug delivery devices.
A closer look is taken at nano/microparticles as drug delivery devices for improved efficiency of drug delivery, improved release profiles and drug targeting. Expand
Transport of non-associated electrolytes in acrylamide hydrogels
Abstract Diffusion of non-associated electrolytes (LiCl and KCl) in different hydrogels has been studied to identify the mechanism of electrolyte interaction with the structure of hydrogels and itsExpand
Biodegradable dextran hydrogels crosslinked by stereocomplex formation for the controlled release of pharmaceutical proteins.
A biodegradable dextran hydrogel is described which is based on physical interactions and is particularly suitable for the controlled delivery of pharmaceutically active proteins. Expand
Preparation and characterization of poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) microspheres for controlled release of human growth hormone
The FTIR analyses indicated good stability and structural integrity of HGH localized in the microspheres, and the PLGA-acHES composite microsphere system could be useful for the controlled delivery of protein drugs. Expand
Preparation and characterization of alginate microspheres containing a model antigen
The goal of this study was to evaluate the technological feasibility of delivering antigen using alginate microspheres. The microspheres were prepared by an emulsification technique and fullyExpand
Effect of non-associated electrolyte solutions on the behaviour of poly(vinyl alcohol)-based hydrogels
The aim of this paper is to present the behaviour of the poly(vinyl alcohol) hydrogels [PVA-HG] in sodium and potassium chlorides aqueous solutions, due to their interactions. The tested [PVA-HG]-sExpand
Drug release behavior of electrical responsive poly(vinyl alcohol)/poly(acrylic acid) IPN hydrogels under an electric stimulus
The electrically modulated properties of interpenetrating polymer networks (IPN) composed of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and poly(acrylic acid) (PAAc) under electric field were investigated for drugExpand
